LONDON (Reuters) – Russia’s state-funded RT television channel said on Thursday that it had long stopped expecting any legitimacy or reason in Britain’s attempts to curtail media freedoms.
“We have long stopped expecting any legitimacy or reason in the UK’s attempts to curtail media freedoms,” Anna Belkina, RT’s deputy editor in chief, told Reuters.
“Now it seems it has forgotten Brexit and is seeking to force influence over the rest of Europe too.”
British culture minister Nadine Dorries said on Thursday she had written to social media company Tik Tok and Facebook’s parent company Meta Platforms to ask if they could prevent access to RT in Britain.
